The aim of this global conversation is to discuss issues relating to Human Rights in a complex world, where vulnerable groups as Refugees and Migrants communities are facing challenges on their daily life and not respected as human beings.

What kind of change can we promote in order to fight against discrimination? What about if we were able to provide them with access to their rights as well as better opportunities for a peaceful life? How young generations can overcome the challenge of discrimination, ensure their access to human rights, and become contributors to the promotion of the inclusion of these communities?

Cycle on Youth Human Rights Activism: Beyond Social Media 0 Reply

DC Session May 2011 - Co-Creating Democracy 2



Nowadays because of the development of ICT and the global interconnectivity, youth have more access to information about global issues. Indeed, technology and the use of digital media have changed the way youth participate in activism globally, and youth are more active in media than older generations.

Youth activism and civic participation in social change focuses more on issue-oriented activism. People under the age of 18 comprise 46% of the global population, and these youth played a crucial role around the world in promoting human rights, equality and equity. They serve to strengthen already existing networks of political and social relationships among activists offline. Media activism among youth can be linked to the way youth protest and create communities online over specific issues and social connections. Social Media has become a primary organising tool for political and social movements globally. These movements through social media have been attributed to the interest and involvement of younger generations. However, beyond social media, new ICT technology is offering new opportunities and challenges to young social changers and activists.

This programme is aimed at strengthening Youth Human Rights Activism for social change. This cycle has as objective to analyse and to promote opportunities for developing skills of youth activists on Human Rights activism, social media, civic participation, cooperation and networking.


For this purpose Dialogue Cafe Network (DC √Čvora, DC Lisbon, DC Novi Pazar and DC Rio de Janeiro) is organising a cycle of three sessions as follows:


  • Session 1 ‚Äď Round-table: Youth Activism and Human Rights: Challenges and Added Value (25 February 2016 – from 15h00 to 16h30 London time)
  • Session 2 ‚Äď Workshop: Social media tools for activism (micro-blogging, online platforms, blogging). (03 March 2016 –¬†from 15h00 to 16h30 London time)
  • Session 3 ‚Äď Workshop: Why are social networks powerful tools for causes and campaigns? Working together, Launching a Campaign. (10 March 2016 –¬†from 15h00 to 16h30 London time)
